Photoshop Elements: Beyond the Basics

Hazel Meredith
BioWebsite

Friday, Mar. 4, 9:30am - 5:30pm

Fee: $140

  Hazel shows how the "Power of Layers" can make your editing go quicker, smoother, and easier while providing "non-destructive" editing, giving you the versatility to return to your original image and make further adjustments. She demonstrates the basic adjustment Layers (correcting color, saturation and contrast) and the use of four types of Layers. She also explains some of Elements' most used tools, including making selections and how masking can simplify many processes. She demonstrates how filters, textures, shapes, and type can jazz up your images. She shows how you can change the effect of a layer by utilizing blending modes and opacity levels and how more advanced functions of layers can help your workflow. She concludes with sharpening, sizing and saving photos. Note: Each student will be given a CD with images so everyone can follow along together. Hazel also provides class notes for reference and practice at home.

Prerequisites: A basic knowledge of computers and familiarity with Elements' basic functions (this is an intermediate level class).
